Biography[edit]

Calico Sunset is a result of the union between Joseph and Jenny. Since joining, they have managed to create an eclectic breed of electropop. Not long after their formation, Calico Sunset found themselves playing a series of shows that resulted in their being signed to Jeff Cloud's (Starflyer 59 and Joy Electric) Velvet Blue Music label. Calico Sunset's debut album on VBM titled "Deep Deep Paranoia," was produced by Frank Lenz (Starflyer 59). "Deep Deep Paranoia" not only featured Lenz's producing and playing talents, but also featured Map's Josh Dooley on guitar. Shortly after the release of "Deep Deep Paranoia," Calico Sunset was asked to join Tooth and Nail veteran Joy Electric on a nationwide tour. After their last release title "If You Got It" (a self-released 7 inch) The Andreottis have been playing fewer shows, and as of January 1, 2008, their Myspace page has been deactivated, assuming they have broken up Calico Sunset.
